A space of quasi-science fiction
Upon leaving the lift, in the lobby, the guest discovers a space characterised by sinuous, curved shapes. First we notice a slim, sinuously shaped lamp christened with the name Vortexx which dominates the entire space. It is truly spectacular and is placed at eye level so that all the changes can be appreciated.
In the rooms, the most outstanding feature is the spaciousness and clean lines conferred by the white colour of the floor and walls. One of the most noteworthy elements is the lighting created for the doors. This entails a strip of LEDs that illuminate the messages on the doors. In this way, from the inside guests can indicate whether they want breakfast to be served, the room to be tidied or not to be bothered.
Inside the room, and also from a piece of the same LG Hi-Macs emerge the bed, the desk and the other furniture. Everything seems to issue from the wall and gives the impression that, at the guest’s orders, it could be stowed back into the wall. The bathroom is a single structure from floor to ceiling, it is a monochromatic space. The bathtub melds with the sink, without sunder.
